Alexa Chung lacks make-up loyalty

Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung isn't loyal to her favourite cosmetics products.

The brunette beauty is known for mixing up her hair into different shades and styles.

Alexa will go from one cosmetic product to another in an equally flippant fashion.

"I'm even more fickle with make-up; I like to experiment and mix my own lipsticks and eye shadows - a trick I learnt while modelling," Alexa revealed to the latest edition of UK magazine InStyle. "And I love a bright red lip. I'm not great at looking after my skin, but I do use a good moisturiser, drink lots of water and try not to booze too much."

Alexa loves splashing out on make-up, although often finds she's purchased the same thing twice.

"I buy a lot of YSL Beaute lipsticks in bright coral and pink shades. I keep getting the same colours though. It's only once I get home that I realise I already bought that one," she laughed.

"I live in New York so I go to the salon to get my nails done. My favourite colours are Essie's Tarte Deco and Lilacism."

The 29-year-old has developed a better understanding of make-up with age. She now knows what looks she likes and what suits her.

"I used to ask my mum why people wear foundation. Now I understand! I like using YSL and Laura Mercier products," she finished. "I like a cream blush rather than a powder formula - I'm obsessed with dewy skin."
